    Suit is from Howard Yount. Jamison has a suit customer for life. Best fitting RTW I've ever had on torso and shoulders, though there is a wrinkle/bump below the collar on the back. I'm wondering how much it costs to fix that and whether it's worth getting it taken care of. (what generally causes that?)

    Thanks, guys.
    I actually only own two solid blue ties (one Grenadine & one Silk-Knit in a nice 8cm width).

    I think you just have to lower the collar a little. Pretty sure that can be done. No idea how much. My places take a week to cuff trousers, not an hour. This tells me we don't go to the same place.

    "Best fitting suit off the rack." - Lucky. I don't get that, being a 38L. Looking great.

    That was going to be my guess. I have been eyeing that suit for a while, and I really like it. I may have to go for if they still have it in my size.

    I've had mine cuffed over coffee (I have a tricky right shoulder, so I've spent a lot of money on alterations). For big stuff, time is less important than quality. For something like cuffing pants, there is no need for it to take more than two days to get back.

    Damn. Looks like I'll have to talk to my tailor. I know it's easy work (I can do it myself, but I don't prefer to) and only takes a few minutes.

    This isn't bad, mimo. The pants look a bit short, though. Also, for future purchases, you might want to get jackets with the breast pocket closer to the center of your chest. The placement on what I've seen you wear so far accentuates your broad chest.
    Cuffs predate #menswear, Clag.

    I agree. I've cuffed everything. Started ignoring the rule that you can't cuff flat-front pants. I love the transition from the pants to sock/shoe with the cuff.

    Love the shirt Mimo. And I agree with SB on the pocket and pant length. Not that my opinion holds water... :-D

    Aye, but 2" cuffs?

    I do disagree with the idea that flat front pants can't have pleats cuffs.

    Duly noted sir. Thank you for the comments. I don't own a white PS for the TV fold, and I am usually in the stitches camp regarding PS, but I think a white PS could actually work.

    Joining Clags with some Howard Yount wares today. No bosses + no client meetings = no tie. Cheers.

    Just ask your tailor to have one side pleated and the other side flat front. The ultimate sprezz.

    2" cuffs are awesome.

    for a long time i adhered to flat front = no cuffs. im glad i realized the error of my ways. :)

    Chicks will do more stuff if you wear a 2-inch cuff.

    I do cuff everything as well. Looks just nicer to me [​IMG]

    I also get side tabs and brace buttons on all custom pants, both pleated and flat fronts. It's more comfortable for me so why not.
